Lug Infinity ∞ Lacing
Specifically for shoes with lugs, this lacing resembles a series of infinity "∞" symbols. This lacing works
best with thinner shoelaces because each lug needs to accommodate two passes of shoelace.
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
• Cross the ends, running diagonally across and down the shoe, feeding back into the bottom of the
adjacent lug on the opposite side. There will already be a lace running through that lug, so this will be a
• Run the ends straight up through those lugs, then continue straight up and through the next higher set
of lugs up the shoe.
• Repeat crossing the ends and feeding up through lugs until lacing is completed.

No thick laces
52% shorter ends (approx.)
If the shoelaces are too thick to run twice through the lugs, an alternative is
Lug Ladder Lacing, which looks very similar but runs the second pass of shoelace
over the lugs instead of

Shorter ends if existing shoelaces are re-used (−52% on average).
